The Garrison Art Center’s Annual Holiday Pottery Sale will open Nov. 23, Black Friday. There are many reasons for shoppers to attend the holiday sale — to avoid the lines and chaos at the malls, the traffic, the elevator Christmas music — but also to support regional art and artists, purchase unique gifts, and keep the local art center thriving.
The Riverside Galleries will be filled with pottery as well as fine art and crafts. Many pieces have been made by a few of the artists who use the GAC’s ceramic studio to create their works. There will be more than 30 other regional artists featured.
A member-only preview and sale will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. on Black Friday. Coffee and hot cider will be served. Members will get first dibs and receive a 10 percent discount. The GAC can register new members at the preview and will make the membership good through December 2013; the member discount could also be used at next year’s member preview sale.
The public opening and party is 5 to 7 p.m. that evening. Customers can enjoy refreshments and browse the galleries. The sale will also be open every day through Dec. 2, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
